    You really need to get Tims blade holder and sink tube adapter it will make your conversion to led much smiplier.

    You will not find anything cheaper and not a boat load os hassle. Do yourself a favor and get Tim's holder.

    Some of the pittly little stuff you could buy locally, but others it's A LOT of work to make a substitute. The hardest thing would be the heatsink and to a lesser extent the holder.

    there is no way you can make an led without tims holder unless you machine the aluminum yourself which will be a pain because
    1) you might not have a lathe
    and
    2) it will cost you more money, and your going for the cheapest deal, so buy from tim.

    There are ways... it's not like LED sabers were invented by TCSS.[] It's just really difficult.

    You are generally correct that it requires machining skills, but more for the heatsink than the holder. A PVC holder can be made with a lot of work.

    PVC is not that great because you still need to find the right size, and i think that a metal blade holder is the sturdiest.
